Electrify
Our electric violins are built with ergonomics as a priority not an after-thought. We've found electric violins are often even heavier than acoustic instruments and create back and neck pain and fatigue which lead to fundamental musculoskeletal problems. These issues interfere with a musician's focus, technique and creativity. Why sacrifice? You can have ease of playing and luscious sound with our cutting edge design and first rate electronics. Don't compromise for a beautiful sound. The measurements (body and string length, neck width, etc.) of our instrument is identical to a traditional acoustic violin. We make 4 and 5 string models.

We use Barbera Transducer Systems© Twin Hybrid Bridge Model Violin Pickups. Twin Hybrid Bridges sense a stereoscopic image of each strings vibrational dynamic output. With two dual element transducers per string the Twin Hybrid Model Bridge provides an extra degree of refined tonal warmth and clarity, smoothness of sound and balance of output from low to high registers.
Our revolutionary design lets the violin vibrate more normally. The transducer bridge then picks up not only string vibration but the beautiful round overtones often missing from most solid electric instruments. With our extraordinary instrument you can get a powerful, rich and clear 'violin' sound. Call or email us today to try one!
Free Yourself!
Are you still in pain from playing the violin?  From my own problems with arthritis in my neck, tendonitis and muscular strain I could no longer play my instrument for more than a half an hour without tremendous debilitating pain. And this was after 2 years of physical therapy and other treatments. As my options for performing seemed to narrow, I desperately sought alternatives. So I've invented a special harness so you don't have to squeeze your violin between your chin and shoulder to hold your violin up. With this amazing device your violin rests on your shoulder and the harness keeps the violin up and pressed to your body. Your head and body can move freely. Your neck and spine can remain in alignment. Each harness must be custom fitted for best results.
Lefties
Are you a lefty looking for the violin made just for you? David's attention to detail makes his left-handed instruments look and sound beautiful. If you've been looking for a violin to meet your unique needs this will not disappoint. He makes sure the bass bar and soundpost are positioned just right. The neck is set on an angle to meet the needs of a left handed musician. Call us to try one out.
